    Skills21 is offering a PD on personalized learning and Capstone.  The program is supported by an NSF grant and focuses on STEM and entrepreneurship.


    Personalized learning and senior year Capstone experiences are uniquely suited to work together to achieve important STEM learning outcomes for students.  If you currently have, or are considering adding, a Capstone course to your high school curriculum, you will benefit from this two day professional development session from the learning specialists at EdAdvance’s Skills21.  Skills21 has a National Science Foundation supported Capstone course which can serve as a model for any district that wants to apply its lessons learned.  The STEMStarter Capstone program focuses on promoting entrepreneurial traits in students and increasing STEM career interests.

    Day 1 (Tuesday, March 13, 2018) will be focused on professional development that will allow teachers and administrators the opportunity to explore the Skills21 approach to personalized learning, challenge based lesson design, and the Skills21 Capstone curriculum.  Day 1 will be held at the Chrysalis Center in Hartford from 8:30-2:30.

    Day 2 (Friday, May 18, 2018)  of the workshop will give participants an opportunity to interact with students that are currently enrolled in this course during the 2017-2018 school year and then actually be a judge for these same projects as part of the 2018 Student Innovation Expo Fest. This judging experience will also provide an opportunity to interact with Trackpad, our customized platform designed to facilitate the judging and assessment of Capstone projects.  Day 2 will be held at Expo Fest at the Toyota Presents Oakdale Theater in Wallingford, CT from 12:00-4:00.

    For those of you who haven't already registered for the next Math Encounters presentation, we are happy to announce that Susan Goldstine will be presenting "The Fabric of Symmetry: Connecting Mathematics and Fiber Arts" on Wednesday, February 7.

    About the talk: What do knitting, embroidery, and beadwork tell us about symmetry?  What does symmetry tell us about design in textiles?  Join us in an exploration of contemporary mathematical fiber arts with Susan Goldstine, Professor of Mathematics at St. Mary’s College of Maryland and Associate Editor of the Journal of Mathematics and the Arts.  Special introduction by Robert P. Crease, Chair of the Department of Philosophy, Stony Brook University.

    MoMath is pleased to offer two sessions of the upcoming Math Encounters presentation.  The first will begin promptly at 4:00 pm, with light refreshments served afterward.  The second will begin promptly at 7:00 pm, with light refreshments served beforehand, at 6:30 pm.  Both presentations will be held at MoMath, which is located at 11 E 26th Street in Manhattan.

    Engaging Resources for Your Students

    Pre-K – Grade 2

    Numbers Many Ways

    Students work with subtraction at the intuitive level as they explore number families and ways to decompose numbers to 10. They will also identify members of fact families, a set of three (or two) numbers that can be related by addition and subtraction.

     

    Grades 3–5

    High Temperature

    In this lesson, students complete a chart by adding or subtracting from a given value, use graphs to compare two categories of information, and identify number patterns.

     

    Grades 6–8

    Polygon Capture

    In this lesson, students classify polygons according to more than one property at a time. In the context of a game, students move from a simple description of shapes to an analysis of how properties are related. This lesson was adapted from an article that appeared in the October 1998 issue of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School.

     

    Grades 9–12

    Building Connections

    This lesson focuses on having students make connections among different classes of polynomial functions by exploring the graphs of the functions. The questions in the activity sheets allow students to make connections between the x-intercepts of the graph of a polynomial and the polynomial's factors. This activity is designed for students who already have a strong understanding of linear functions, some knowledge of quadratic functions, and what is meant by a polynomial function.

    A man has to take a wolf, a goat, and some cabbage across a river. His rowboat has enough room for the man plus either the wolf or the goat or the cabbage.
